Youth in Care week image
June 5, 2017

For the seventh consecutive year, British Columbia is marking Child and Youth in Care Week, a designation that honours the diversity and strengths of young people living in the care of the provincial government and acknowledges the challenges and obstacles that these children and youth face - and work to overcome - on a daily basis.

I am pleased to join in celebrating this week for the first time as B.C.'s Representative for Children and Youth. The well-being of children and youth in care of the government is a major focus of our Office and of each and every member of our staff - so this week is of great significance to the RCY.
